  1. Today
  2. Agree that we should use picks to bolster a trade and get an NHL ready goalie or a proven scorer. If that trades not out there, using our second or third 2nd round picks to move up and grab Sinclair would seem a reasonable move to me.
  3. That’s pretty much the sentiment of the entire fan base
  4. I don’t think the leave of absence was anything more than the team agreeing to pay Darling while he took time away from the Checkers for a non injury-related reason. And while he returned to the Checkers after the leave of absence, I didn’t see anything written that suggested he played in any more games. I think Scott is wrapping his head around the likely buyout, whether another organization is willing to give him a chance to fight his way back to the NHL, or whether he wants to use his buyout money to set himself up for a new challenge in or out of hockey. All I can add is I admire the effort he made to get his game back last summer, and wish him nothing but the best, but I don’t want to keep him in the Canes organization any longer.
  5. Valid...but the point is that it's not unheard of. And I was on the record as being against that signing due to his concussion history. He proved me wrong. Maybe Ferls will do the same if given a chance here.
  6. if he could play a full season and be productive on the stat sheet , But im having a hard time of recent finding any reason to believe he could do that . He is Injury prone !
  7. Yesterday
  8. I think I misread Ferland’s situation, I really thought he wanted out of here. After seeing his interview he seemed pretty sincere. I know there is “saying all the right things” thing but... I might be in the minority but I want him to stay. Unfortunately Hag65, I think it will play out as you said.
  9. Player exit interviews are posted in Canes Video
  10. We paid Jeff Skinner after all those concussions...just sayin
  11. Sorry rem, but thought I'd read that in the last few? Maybe saw it by some other poster?
  12. I know a person who knows a person who said Ferland said he really wants to return to the Canes. So it isn't not wanting to play here, it will come down to how much we want him, if at all, and if it meets his $. IMHO we won't pay him enough to keep him since we already have a taste of him getting hurt too much, and someone will take a bigger chance than we are willing to.
  13. Understandably, but i have to say it was either irresponsible to play a guy with a game-hampering injury instead of letting him heal, or the Canes don't have the defensive depth we think they do. Which may have been confirmed in the playoffs when the preferred 7th guy was given 3 minutes a night...
  14. Hi Kjun. Actually, Mike is probably the best next-to-ice guy we've had since they added that component some 10 odd years or so ago. Also liked him on the Aftermath too, and even on the sports morning show before the WRAL media machine switched gears on sports radio and went to an urban sports format and booted him. He needs some practice and polish on play-by-play is all I'm saying. I'd have an open mind on this, which is why I was wishy-washy on my non-emoticon insertion. Did you catch his play by play on the radio? At times good, at times, a bit troublesome. All about 100x better than I could do, for sure, so who am I to say? We are getting way ahead of ourselves here. We just have to see how this unfolds. Maybe John will be back. Who knows.
  15. Suzuki will be gone before we get there. We need to trade picks to get make roster player deals.
  16. OMG I didnt even see this , So Ryan Suzuki is up for grabs this year . in case you are wondering he played with Svechnikov last year with the Barrie Colts , I was under the impression he got drafted but it was his brother Nick Suzuki that got picked instead of Ryan . I was under the impression There was only 1 Suzuki and not 2 lol He is a forward in case people are wondering . here are the low downs on him 6'0 176 pounds 17 years old shoots left plays center projected anywhere to go from 12th to 26th he scored in 65 games 25 goals 50 assist 14 pim the read out on him Suzuki is one of the smartest OHL prospects we have seen in years. He is a good skater, excellent passer and is very good at putting himself in scoring positions, where he rarely fails to capitalize. He does not play overly physical, but is very good at avoiding contact while doing so. He has excellent hands and all around vision. The top player in the Alliance Loop this season, his name was the very first called in April's OHL Draft. (Tyler Parchem, EP 2017) from what i saw highlights of Svechnikov last year he played quite a bit with Ryan and they showed some chemistry .
  17. Aye . But Knight if he were to slide down to the canes , The Canes would be mighty stupid to pass on him just for some random forward . How ever on defense this year . There are tons of guys , Too many to list actually , It would take up all my time just to post but are a few I would like to put up in here when I find the time to do so .
  18. What exactly is Ferland asking for ? given his play and how much he played this year i see no issue with giving the man 2 or 3 but anymore than that is just laughable !
  19. There is no better guy than a Brind'Amour guy !
  20. The question one must ask about all these potential free agents is: are they Rod Brind’Amour type of players? We all know playing for Rod is no picnic in the park...are guys like Brayden Point going to run through the proverbial wall in *both* the regular season and playoffs?
  21. I'm sure that is part of it. I think the unspoken part of his reaction is would like to return (if the price is right) I do believe him when he says he would like to be back but at the same time a player has only a few opportunities to capitalize on contracts. I wont be surprised if Ferland is a goner.
  22. I know Ferland is probably just saying the right things. But... You know in the first half of the year, I would have loved to re sign Ferland, but just assumed the price, especially in terms of "term" would be too high. Then, after his injury, it's effects and those of his line demotion, the team continued it's run and deep playoff run without much from him, and I was thinking, no way, again assuming as a UFA he'd get a big deal, and his post injury play did not justify it. If however, Ferland accepts that maybe he's not getting a huge deal, and would sign for a team friendly deal, I'd still look at him. Of course it depends too on how his injury and DNP's in the playoffs really went down too. But the Ferland that hit everything in sight and really scored a fair amount, was a useful player and a major reason we had some grit and bite this year. The problem for me, and I suspect the team, is term. With so many yutes pushing up, and the need to fix the PP, which Ferland does not do, and his injury prone nature, I just can't see giving him term, and especially term plus NTC. So, it seems highly unlikely that we sign him. I still maintain that the outside chance would be if he languished on the UFA market for a while and his price/term came down. But for the right price this guy is kind of like an offensively upgraded Martinook, and having them both would still be nice, if the price was right.
